The Emergency Room at this hospital is absolutely awful. As a care giver, had to call 911 for a patient who had a fall and could not get him up. He had fractured his back from the fall. Upon arriving this Emergency Room and laying there for three hours in pain and not one doctor showed up to check on him. Ask the nurses for water or ice chips and they refused. Ask the nurses where is the doctor? This patient is in horrible pain. Their only response was the the doctor is making rounds. After three hours of nothing, I was able to get the patient into a wheel chair, into my car and immediately drove to Piedmont/Fayette whereas they immediately took control. The call to Spalding County 911 is not worth the trip to Well Star Hospital, Griffin. I have never experienced such a unprofessional staff in An ER in my life. Piedmont/Fayette is a much better facility and they will take care of you.
I'll give two stars for the caring staff we encountered. I feel as though there is a major lack of communication between the staff members, especially between the nurses and doctors. The wait time for answers seemed to be prolonged and everyone was giving information.
I am a very understanding person I never complain. I have been to this hospital to times In the past 2 weeks for the same pain. My 1st visit I had pain under my left rib cage and my left arm and shoulder The pain was about a 7-8. They checked my heart and my lungs. My chest didn't hurt. They said everything was find and sent me home still in bad pain. My 2nd visit was four days later. My pain had become so bad I couldn't hardly sleep. There was nothing that would make it better. So I went back. I told them it wasn't my heart or lungs that its either under my left rib or the rib itself. They did a ct of my organs it came out fine. And lab work also fine. The iv with no fluids was put in my arm about 3 hours after getting there. my hand started to swell get ice cold turn white and got numb and stiff. I hit the nurse call button and told them. After about an hour my nurse came in I told him about my hand. And he said ya i can see that and you hand it freezing. Then he started to rush and get the iv out. He also cut my hospital band off for some reason. Then told me I can go. I was in worse pain and extra pain from my arm/ because of the iv..... it's been 2 days my left rib is still killing me and now my hand gets numb, hurts and I can feel nerves every time I bend or twist my arm and move my fingers. My pain level was at a good 9. I was there for 6 hours in all and was given tramadol 2 minutes before I was told I can go home. I will be going to another hospital if whatever this is does not get better by this weekend. This was the most awful experience I have ever had with a hospital. I would not go here if I was you.
I wish I could give no stars. This hospital is one of the worse it takes almost 10hrs to be discharged. The employees have no respect and are rude. But what really gets me is that they have more people who clean up then doctors!!!! WellStar.... PLEASE DO BETTER!!!
I had the best experience with the labor and delivery unit of this hospital. I was there for an adoption and the entire staff was amazing! They were both accommodating to our family and the birth mom. Thank you, thank you! You played a very important role in the growth of our family!
